The annual Ladies Storm King Open, hosted by the Glenwood Springs Golf Club, tees off this morning at 9 a.m.

A full field of 30 teams will take to the links for the two-women, best ball tournament. The 18-hole affair will feature women from throughout the Valley and from as far away as Grand Junction and Rangely.

Within a 13-day span, Bob Campiglia and Patrick Hyland both conquered the 140-yard Hole 4 at Glenwood Springs Golf Club.

On July 3, an 8-iron-wielding Campiglia found the cup with a tee shot for a hole-in-one.

Hyland, also using an 8-iron, followed up with a hole-in-one on July 16.

Both shots were witnessed by Mark Smith, John Schneider and Clem Lundberg.
